BBQ Chicken Pizza

This was first made in our house almost a year ago. I, however, not only didn't make it, but I also didn't even taste it. Newly pregnant, I was too tired to cook that day and the smell of the chicken turned my stomach. I finally got around to making it again, and it? Is awesome. This was fantastic and it will be going into our pizza rotation.

I used Bulls Eye Original BBQ sauce. I picked it because it had no HFCS, but the flavor is just awesome. It was perfect in this recipe.

Some alterations I would make to this is that, as written, it uses WAY too much BBQ sauce. I put 1c on the chicken as a marinade and a thin layer on the pizza itself. I should have just used the marinade and been done with it.

From $5 Dinners. Original recipe here.

2 chicken breasts
1 cup BBQ sauce
Homemade Pizza Crust (used our recipe, posted here)
1/2 large red onion
2 crushed garlic cloves
1/2 - 1 cup BBQ sauce

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dice chicken breasts and pour 1 cup of BBQ sauce over the pieces. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Saute chicken pieces in skillet over medium high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken has cooked through.
2. Prepare homemade pizza dough.
3. Meanwhile, saute chopped red onions and garlic in 1 tsp olive oil for 4-5 minutes, or until onions become more opaque.
3. Roll pizza crust onto pizza pan or baking stone. Top with 1/2 - 1 cup of BBQ sauce and spread around with spoon.
4. Top with cooked diced chicken and sauted red onions. (Top with 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese!)
5. Bake about 20 minutes.
